MegaFlorestais 2009 - Programme
- Rights and Resources Initiative
Agenda for MegaFlorestais 2009. The MegaFlorestais working group aims to foster closer relationships between forest agencies, collectively strengthening their abilities to play leading roles in advancing sustainable forestry and forestry’s contribution to global social and economic development. The meeting in British Columbia continued MegaFlorestais’ focus on forest tenure, policy and regulations, and the changing roles of forest agencies – issues that are particularly critical in British Columbia and Canada today because of the increased attention being paid to forests in the global discussions on climate change mitigation and adaptation. In addition, the meeting discussed transitions in the global forest industry, and how agencies are responding to ensure that their domestic industries continue to contribute to rural development, as well as climate change and the role of forest agencies in addressing this critical global challenge.
